govern and i can only govern if i make you understand that i'm not going to put up with it anymore. >> it seems like an outburst that has been two years in coming and is loaded with things like, we don't have control of the united states senate because of you, tea party people who have given us nuts as republican senate nominees. and boehner's life would be so much better if he was working with a republican senate instead of the democratic senate he is working with. >> yes. and also, though, i think this message is that the speaker, he wants to govern. the whole point of coming to washington is not just to slash, cut, close. it is about governing. and john boehner for whatever you think of him is someone that wants to get a deal. he wants to govern. by doing what he has done, he is saying, look. enough with the games. we don't have the senate as you were saying. the only way we can do this is if i pull on the reins a whole lot. not just a bit. that's what he's done. >> the striking thing is how much outrage there is not. we had to comb around to find these comments. thank you very

the government realized there was a wartime manpower shortage. and when the military was opened up. thousands of young japanese americans went to fight for this country. they were put into a segregated unit and fought on the bloody battlefields in europe. and came back the most decorated and exercised something that was very important. they did it for their family certainly, but for the greater good because they loved america. they sacrificed themselves and many many perished on those fields and that is the kind of situation we are faced with now and those republicans can't seem to get it. they are so bull headedly when theed to their philosophy. we need to raise taxes to meet the crisis. and they would rather plunge down that cliff and plunge us into another economic catastrophe because the sequester is going to cancel the military contracts that we have and that means unemployment for many many years ahead. and all it takes is everybody rallying together and sacrificing a tiny bit. during what we enjoyed during the clinton jeers. lots of jobs being created. and cutting taxes crea

government-centered society. the case would be easier to make if it were an unprecedented hike but it's not. it's a return to a rate from the mid 1990s. ari, that's the problem. the big scary thing president obama is talking about is having the big scary top tax rate be the same as it was under president clinton when people in the top tax bracket had a great time. >> exactly. everyone remembers that. everyone understands that. there isn't a big principle here left for the republicans. that's why the fallback position i think shows a great weakness. it also shows a top of economic nighalism that they don't care about the cred imrating of the united states of america. we already knew that. the other difference that is going to hurt them, we are seeing it in the bloomberg news poll and the views. this should be a compromise time and obama should get the tax hike on the upper 2%. people talk about a teachable moment. this is a teachable month. this is taking a long time. it hurts republicans because people are seeing the entrance yents and seeing who is in the way of recovery. >> there

states government all things will be great for us. >> they did trillion plus cuts last year. it's not easy to find things anybody will cut. if you keep doing this and have to cut another trillion you run out. >> they want to do this to pursue really unpopular policies. like reducing social security benefits. >> remember this is no longer. the president ran on that message, which is a testament to how far we've come since george h. w. bush. i'm wondering where norquist goes into this? if they raise taxes, no matter what is around it. does he still have clout in the gop? >> i think he ends up drinking a strong glass of merlot. >> i'll never do it again. >> right, right. listen, it seems clear at this juncture that the pledge will be broken. if it's not via the bush tax rates it are be via the tax cuts. i don't know what this means for his long term clout. in the short term i think he's going to have to do some rebuilding. he's going to have to try to buck up people. he's going to have to go out there and create consequences politically for the people who violated the pledge. >> inde

influence on our politics and our governing? republicans will all say ronald reagan and they will all be wrong because they no longer understand ronald reagan or themselves. no one will say one-term president george h.w. bush and everyone will be right about that. democrats will say bill clinton and they will be wrong. that leaves the last man standing, newt gingrich. i think that i can safely assume that none of you chose newt gingrich as the person who had the most lasting and influential on our politics and governing. and that is because the american media covers the presidency the way the british covers the monarchy. they pretend that we have a king, that nobody could possibly be more important than the president. the media simply refuses to comprehend how powerful congress is and how powerful the speaker of the house can be, something that the founding fathers discovered. why are republicans wrong when they say that reagan was such a great president? because nothing of reaganism survived his presidency. there is no reagan legacy. republicans lie to themselves and they try to lie to
